The winter window closes its door on January 31st, and Deportivo is making several movements in it. The first one is the confirmed departure of Rodri to Almer?a. Meanwhile Coloccini, Duscher, Adri??n and Iago are waiting for an exit. In the opposite direction, Pablo Alvarez and Xisco could be near to be inscribed with the first squad.

Canaldeportivo.com confirmed that defender Rodri will play on loan in Almer?a until June. The Catalan defender arrived from Barcelona during the summer, but he has only played one minute in la liga, and also four matches in copa del rey. In order to give him more minutes, Caparr??s and Rodri talked and decided that it was the best thing for the youngster.

Depor's website didn't inform about the financial aspects of this operation. But it has been rumored that it could be around the €120,000. The amount of money that will be paid for the six months that the Catalan will spend in the Andalucian club. UD Almer?a is currently occupying the third position in Segunda and is one of the favourites teams in order to achieve the promotion to Primera.

And there are four other possible exits that Deportivo is studying: Aldo Duscher, Fabricio Coloccini, Adri??n L??pez and Iago. Depor Sport confirmed that the club has received a call from Olympique Lyon for Duscher, apparently the French club is ready to pay €2 million in order to sign the player right now, but Lendoiro isn't sure about this move since the Argentinean is an important piece in Caparr??s's squad.

Who seems to be in the door out is Coloccini. Depor Sport confirmed that the club received a €7 million offer from Newcastle United. It has been also commented that the Turkish club BJ Besiktas is interested in the Argentinean player. Coloccini has been out of the list of called players during the last games, and several rumours appoints that this situation is happening because Lendoiro wants to sell him, and other ones appoint that the reason is a confrontation between him and Caparr??s. In any case, Coloccini is right now the first candidate to bring some cash to Deportivo.

Cash that's necessary to fulfill other operations. The conflict with Alav?s for the transfer of Bodipo isn't solved yet. The club is waiting to obtain the money in order to pay the debt and in this way, to lift the block over Depor's inscriptions in la liga. This block is the main reason why the operation with Vecindario for Xisco hasn't been done.

The agreement with Vecindario is done. Depor will recuperate Xisco, while the Canarian club will receive as exchange the loans of Adri??n and Iago, but Deportivo must solve the case with Alav?s first. A necessary condition in order to inscribe the young striker in la liga. A similar case is lived by Pablo Alvarez, the exit of Rodri is giving him the spot that he was waiting for, but he can't be inscribed until the problem with Bodipo is resolved.

Another player that's changing squad is Angel Guirado. The midfielder was signed from C??rdoba in the summer and was loaned out to Vecindario in the same package that included Iv??n Carril and Xisco. But only Xisco has found a place in the Canarian club, for that reason Guirado returned to La Coru?a and now Lendoiro has loaned him out again, this time to his destiny is Lugo, a team from Segunda B. On the past week, Iv??n Carril, who lived the same case, was loaned out to Palencia. Another Galician club that's currently playing in Segunda B
